is the title of a famous picture by Holman Hunt, the artist. It portrays the Lord Jesus Christ, thorn-crowned, and carrying a lantern in his left hand, knocking at a closed door.
It is said that the artist, after completing the picture, showed it to some friends who praised the merit of the painting. One of them pointed out what he considered an omission on the part of the artist.
"You have put no handle on the door," he said to Holman Hunt, who replied immediately, "You forget - the handle is on the inside."
Rev 3:20 (ISV): "Look! I am standing at the door and knocking. If anyone listens to my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he will eat with me."
"God will not force Himself upon us against our will. If we want His love, we need to believe in Him. We need to make a definite, positive act of commitment and surrender to the love of God. No one can do it for us." - Billy Graham.
